    This will by my 20
    th year as a teacher at North Hills and my 30th year of teaching.  I'm originally from Houston, Texas and moved to Irving when I got married.  All five of my children have attended North Hills, one of whom attended North Hills in its first year back in 1997.  My husband, Jim Kennedy, works at North Hills as the Facilities Manager in the Operations Department.  Our 3 oldest sons are U.S Marines (no longer active duty).  Our 1st son works for Amazon. Our second son has since switched to the U.S. Airforce and is married to an Air Force Dentist (studying to become a Periodontist)  Our 4th son is married and is a fireman for the Irving Fire Department.  Our 4th child and oldest daughter, is studying to become a Social Worker and our youngest daughter just graduated with a degree in Drama & Film Studies and is currently living in England where she attended university. We have 5 grandchildren and one very cute & smart Corgi names Ami. 

    I enjoy teaching at the middle school level and preparing these scholars for their high school experience! This year will be especially exciting for me as I will be learning Texas History alongside your scholars since it is my first year teaching this subject area.  My degree is in Global History so it will be fun and interesting to see how our wonderful state of Texas fits into the larger context of the United States and the world. 

    I am also the 7th grade team lead this year.
